NOEL TREANOR REFUSING TO MEET VICTIM OF D&C PRIEST SEXUAL ABUSE.

NOEL TREANOR IS, UNTIL TODAY, REFUSING TO MEET A VICTIM OF A D&C PRIEST WHO HAS TOTALLY WRECKED HER LIFE AND BROUGHT HER TO ATTEMPT TAKING HER LIFE!

20190113_1707033949750487287458742.jpgNOEL “AIRMILES” TREANOR

The victim, we will call her Maire, was brutally sexually abused by this priest in his car, and on parish property that led her to have experienced massive mental and emotional suffering for 30 years!

She has consistently asked Noel Treanor and he consistently tells her he will not meet her “as it is a police matter”!

So it the PSNI who should give Maria pastoral care – not the principle pastor of D&C?

Is it the job of the PSNI to minister to Maire?

Is it the PSNI’s mission to provide Maire with therapy and counselling after massive priestly sexual abuse?

Is it the PSNI’s role to heal and restore Maria’s faith and prayer life that was destroyed by a rapacious D&C priest?

NO!

These things are the MISSION of Noel Treanor as a priest and bishop and as the overseer of the church in this area.

And yet, Treanor, with his cold autistic heart, is refusing to meet this poor woman and help her – while he refers her to the state police!

Is he not behaving like Pilate who sent Jesus to Herod?

Treanor has also been putting up his safeguarding minions to put Marie off.

She last spoke some time ago to a Philip O’Hara who is listed on the D&C website as:

Designated Liaison Person for Safeguarding Children and Adults
Philip O’Hara

He was the last person to tell her that Treanor would not meet her and that she should deal with the PSNI.

I sent Mr. O’Hara and email this morning:

Dear Philip,

Is it true that Noel Treanor is refusing to meet ***** from St Matthews parish?

She is, as you know, an alleged victim of Father ***** ******.

Is Noel not interested in giving her:

1. The listening ear of a shepherd.

2. Assistance with counselling and therapy?

No police investigation will be hampered by pastoral care.

She wants to meet her bishop!

Why is he refusing to meet her as Pope Francis tells bishops to do?

+ Pat Buckley

I’m sure the first thing that Philip did was to refer the email to Messrs O’Hagan and Glover.

They will bring it to Airmiles Noel at the Cordon Blue lunch table in Chateau Noel.

And it will probably be ignored – and maybe even laughed at over a classic red from Pomerol.

Here is O’Hara’s reply and my answer to him:

Dear Father Pat,

Thank you for kindly drawing this issue to my attention. We respect the confidentiality of anyone who has contact with the Diocese of Down and Connor Safeguarding Office.

I will note the issues you have raised in this communication.

Regards

Philip O Hara

Designated Liaison Person , Diocese of Down and Connor Safeguarding Office

Dear Philip,

You know as well as I do that this is no answer to my previous mail.

Does your conscience not tell you not to do the bad things the Treanor, O’Hagan and Glover trio tell you to do?

I know they pay you well. But is that not todays equilalent of the 30 pieces of silver?

For Gods sake, like all of us, you have a death bed and a meeting with the Lord to face.

I expect emails like this from clerics.

But not from a father and grandfather.

Have they already destroyed your faith and integrity.

May God forgive you!

Bishop Pat.

PS: I have been dealing with xxxxx for several years and unlike Treanor I did not turn her away.

While tears flow in parishes all over Down & Connor, the wine flows at Chateau Noel


VICTIM CLAINMS THAT FATHER AIDAN KEENAN WAS REMOVED FROM ST MATTHEWS BELFAST BECAUSE HE HAD REPORTED HER ABUSE TO THE PSNI.

Maria has asked me to tell my readers that she reported her abuse to Father Aidan Keenan when he was parish priest of St Matthew’s Parish in Belfast.

Father Aidan immediately reported her abuse and the abusing priest to the PSNI and notified the diocese.

She claims that Father Aidan told her that he moved from St. Matthew’s – where he wanted to stay – because he reported her abuse to the PSNI.

She had told numerous priests before Father Aidan that she had been abused and that while these men said they would do something about it they never did.

In fact, other Down and Connor priests plied her with wine at a time she did not drink.

Maria will have nothing bad said against Father Aidan as he was the first to believe and help her.

She does say that Delia Neeson is playing an unhealthy role in Father Aidan’s life and that at times, Delia blocked Maria from having access to Father Aidan.

  2. This is typical of the Catholic Church. Any problem which they create, they simply wring their hands and say ‘No comment’. So not only is Treanor found wanting in terms of his pastoral skills he is also guilty of cowardice. If a sheep gets hurt , the shepherd tends to it . Treanor’ s idea of shepherding would appear to be – leave the sheep to suffer. This is beyond contempt. The more I hear of this individual the more saddened and angry I become. How could such a man become a bishop? But then again how could McCarrick become a cardinal? Treanor’s lack of compassion and respect for this woman is only prolonging and exacerbating her suffering. This has been the modus operandi for years. Create havoc and if you are found out keep schtum. Meanwhile Treanor will continue to live in his luxury pad uncaring that one of his sheep is in turmoil. take off your blinkers Treanor and open your heart . Ask yourself. What would Jesus do? He certainly would not take your course of action.

  4. If the above series of events are true, which I’m assuming they are, they reflect very poorly on the leadership of Bishop Treanor and his team. It is unconscionable after all we’ve been through in the Church that any Bishop or Safeguarding Team would treat a victim/survivor in this cold, distant, incompassionate way. Undoubtedly there are circumstances which cannot be publicly printed because of ongoing investigations. However, the needs, ferlings, pain and concerns of any abuse victim/survivor must be paramount above all. This involves the Bishop personally meeting such individuals. To fail in this is a colossal failure, morally and spiritually. It goes against all that Christ demands. It is these obstinate, selfish, legal and self protecting approaches that place all of us under such negative and soul destroying criticism. I hope this woman will receive kindness, compassion and justice and hope too that the “eyes of the blind will be opened”, in this case those of Bishop Treanor and his team. I feel a profound shame for the way this woman is being treated. God bless her and her family.

  5. Pat you will find that Bishop Noel is following the correct protocol set down by safeguarding guidelines and guidelines of the PSNI themselves. Why does the lady in question not seek pastoral support from the many priests in the diocese. She speaks highly of Fr Keenans past support so he would be the obvious choice. She doesn’t need to request a meeting with the Bishop simply for pastoral help but I sense you are using this as a cynical ploy to beat Bishop Noel with. Let the police investigation take its course without pre-empting its conclusions. You have caused Fr Keenan a great injustice in the last few days intimating he had to leave St Matthews for false reasons. Today you state the real and true reasons he had to leave. You are now similarly causing the same injustice to Bishop Treanor.

These days you have chosen Bishop Treanor as your target andvyour now abuse the “abused woman” to further your aggressive hatred towards him. You are ABUSING an already abused woman in your vicious vendetta. That I find morally reprehensible. It is totally not of CHRIST. There are specific guidelines drawn up by the state and church which all of us must now adhere to with diligence. For you to try and preempt or second guess any findings or judgments is despicable. Also, you told lies yesterday about Fr. Keenan. Do you habe the integrity or honesty of conscience to apologise to him? Please stop ABUSING already deeply wounded and abused people.

  7. I thought Francis had said that bishops should have the smell of the sheep about them ? Well, certainly nothing I read here suggests that + Noel even approximates to that. More like the smell of eau de some expensive, exclusive, made especially for him eau de perfum from some chic Parisian boulevard. And, looking at pictures of The Priests, I’m sure that Mgr O’Hagan et al have an upmarket perfume about them too, and it won’t be masculine and manly, I assure you ! More prissy, camp, queeny, particular, exclusive and limp.
    There appears to be a gaping chasm between the way these people live their lives – their expectations, their sense of entitlement, their profligacy – and the way the vast majority of us live our lives. Whereas once people did not know about this, now we do know about it, and people rightly see it as being an outrage. Especially given that we pay for the vast majority of it.
    Another example is the plan of + Martin of Dublin to retire to his apartment in Rome near the Colosseum ! Which of us, for God’s sake, could aspire to that ? And where has that money come from, I ask you ?
    The clerical hierarchy of the Church needs to realise that the good times are coming to an end. The Church is in the situation of imploding, and if it is to survive it, and they, will have to become much more aligned with the realities of the world and the people, rather than living in a gilded cage as little princes. It is coming down the tracks, and they simply don’t understand what is going to hit them over the next few decades.

  11. 9:18 and 10:10. Nobody is saying +Treanor should ignore the psni. What is being clearly said however is that as a supposed Christian leader he should follow the protocol of the gospel. That is the definitive instruction for Christians. That he continually fails to do so lends credence to the idea that he simply is not a Christian and the actions of his VG and the darkness Joe Glover would tend to suggest the same. If someone fails you then the bible says we should confront them with the truth. Let those who have ears hear and those who can speak speak. As far as I am aware +Treanor has lost neither of those faculties. You either obey Christ’s teachings or you don’t. No ambiguity there in the word of God. You can’t pick and choose. This whole Down and Saga is an abomination and a desperate reflection on its leadership. However these issues need to keep being raised, challenged and exposed.

  13. Oh the Tenerife boyo who Treanor and O’Hagan wired off

    Like

    1. Oh, him ?! Has he dared to come back home yet ? He’d probably get picked up at the airport by the PSNI. So, I doubt if he will dare to show his face at home again. He’s in exile now forever. Unless he comes clean and follows Francis’ exhortation to turn himself in. Which I very much doubt. But he should. Even if he is innocent. At least he can show he is innocent. His continued absence suggests that he does have something to hide. Maybe the PSNI will eventually put out a European arrest warrant, and then the Spanish / Tenerife people might pick him up and send him back to face the music. Let’s hope. In the meantime, I trust that he is not sleeping very well in his sunshine haven, and that his conscience is causing him some trouble.

      As to Treanor and O’Hagan tipping him off. Well, that could well be seen as frustrating the course of justice. They will have known that he was likely to be questioned by the PSNI, but their interaction with him resulted in him doing a bolt pretty soon after. The two events together could be construed as perverting the course of justice ? Now, wouldn’t that be interesting to see, + Treanor and his VG in front of The Beak ? There would be no more Chateau Pomerol for lunch Chez Noel then for quite a while !!

  14. As regards your and Aidan Keenan’s version of this story:
    It is absolutely crystal clear to all priests and others with responsibility in D&C diocese that the police are immediately involved when there is an allegation of child sexual abuse – indeed any crime of that nature.
    So Aidan’s allegation that he was “punished” by the Bishop for reporting to the PSNI simply doesn’t make sense.
    We are ALL expected to report these matters to the police and, if you don’t, it’s not Bishop Noel you should be worried about.
    Aidan’s being moved though, from St Matthew’s to Nativity, is indeed very strange.
    To move him from one parish where he was causing havoc and inflict him – a clearly unwell man – on another parish, makes no sense at all.
    To entrust him with such a large and challenging parish as Poleglass is utterly nonsensical and shows appallingly poor judgement on behalf of Noel and his advisors.
    The only place Aidan should have been moved to was somewhere like Nazareth Care Village. Permanently. And a police exclusion order put on the mad woman who is controlling his life.
    There is undoubtedly a whole lot more to this story and what you have written, Pat, cannot be taken at face value.
    You have clearly presented a version that feeds your own spiteful hate and, yet again, projects your delusions about yourself, as the crusading “righteous” campaigner.

She may well be good intentioned but that’s not the point. She has no defined role within the church, is not on their payroll and should never be interfering with the running of that parish. Neither should she be visiting the sick with Keenan on pastoral duties. If Keenan was to visit either of my parents accompanied by Delia I would refuse her entry. Has she signed confidentiality forms? I doubt it but then again as in all matters +Treanor buries his head in the sand. Seems to be a feeling that if he ignores things that they just go away. This isn’t so. The least +Treanor owes his flock is courtesy and respect . He demonstrates neither. Either he is incompetent or listens to bad advice from a Christian perspective. Career priests like O’Hagan and Glover need to be moved aside. What do they do to contribute to the spread of the gospel? Sweet fanny adams. These three individuals have a lot to answer for . Down and Connor has never in my lifetime been blessed with good pastoral leaders. It’s always been about protecting the church. They will do anything but the right thing in order to uphold their institution. It’s a pity they don’t uphold the word of God.

If the bishop can’t see the survivors on police instructions the letter saying that can still be phrased in a pastoral way and perhaps run past the police first. If the law is OK with it the person could be directed elsewhere. Again the way the letter is phrased is everything.
    I don’t understand why priests’ housekeepers have so often been live in? There is such a job advertised in Down and Connor as I write this and it’s only twelve hours a week, which would not mean living in.

  24. I think that fundamentally Noel is a good man but he’s afraid of people and he runs away from them constantly with very unfortunate pastoral consequences. He was a bad choice for bishop but there you go – nothing can be done about that now.

    I think it is also most unfortunate the clowns and knaves who have Noel’s confidence (and I don’t mean Joe Glover and Eugene O’Hagan).

    There is a small cabal of clergy and Noel thinks they’re the best thing since sliced bread. But they are not. They have no pastoral judgement or skills themselves and that is filtering down into how the diocese is being badly administered. The “lifestyle” of some of these “pals” of Noel’s is also an accident waiting to happen.

    Noel is probably unable now to extricate himself from the influence of these individuals as they have made him dependent upon them. They tell him what he wants to hear and he is quite happy to be fooled accordingly.

    I’m afraid the confusion and upset will undoubtedly continue for the foreseeable future. That’s the opinion of this lay-woman observer for what it’s worth. My views are drawn from my own listening and observing – to and of – both clerics and laity.

If you are a teacher, a doctor, a nurse, a lawyer, indeed pretty much anything nowadays, and if you belong to an organisation and institution, you are subject to validation, assessment, performance review. So, over on this side of the water, there is OFSTED for schools, there is an Inspector of Constabulary, and Inspector of Prison, and inspector of pretty much anything. So, why is it that large institutions like the Church and its dioceses are not subject to some sort of review by an independent body that ensures that it is performing correctly and well, spending its money wisely, giving value for money etc. Why is it that priests are not reviewed for their performance, just like so many other people who work ? You may say that is the task of the Nuncio, but in reality a diocese and its bishop is pretty much autonomous and gets on with things as they want, accountable to pretty much nobody. Oh, to God, of course. But, I’m not sure the buggers even bother about what He thinks most of the time ! That is why you can have such idiocies happening in places like D&C. No accountability, no being required to perform to a standard, being able to carry on blithely in dysfunction and bad performance for as long as they like. My solution ? The people are the solution. Stop paying for it all. Then they will come and ask why, and then we can hold them to account. This kind of situation would never be tolerated in any other walk of life, so why should we have to put up with it in the Church ? Answers on a postcard, please….

    2. I should imagine it has something to do with the wealth Irish dioceses have built up over the years, with reports of some well in excess of €/£100 million each. Bishoprics are more or less a greasy pole to administer investment portfolios.

      Most of these clerics have NO idea of the harm, hurt, damage inflicted on people abused by the church, nor do they give a crap!
      Most are too damn narcissistic, too selfish and too brainwashed to give a toss. We’ve heard bull for years, blaming the media narrative, crap!
      As for ‘good priests’…their loyalty is to the institution…unless they want a life on ‘the missions’.
      Moral cowards!
      They keep their mouths tightly shut out of fear. So much for all the theology, saying the office, prayer, all the masses celebrated!
      What does it all mean when the chips are down?
      The church is being destroyed by the depth of moral corruption of clergy.

    Pat, wasn’t the Duke of Edinburgh a very lucky man today? There must be a god after all.
    Our nation has been spared a tragedy of unthinkable proportions and millions of loyal subjects have been saved from inconsolable heartbreak.
    One will be intoning a Te Deum later in St Patrick’s and leading a candlelight procession of the hungry homeless up the New Lodge in thanksgiving for our Sovereign Lady’s beloved husband’s safe delivery.
    (Sure won’t the candles keep the homeless warm on this cold night? And wax, I’m told, isn’t too unpalatable when seasoned properly).

    Pat, isn’t it appalling that a woman has been denied her new constitutional right to have a termination. She was denied this by the Coombe Hospital in Dublin and raised in the Dail today as it is now law. I wonder if the Church had anything to do with this outrageous decision. I wouldn’t be surprised.

    2. 8.51: Barbara, you were probably one of the hundreds who jumped with delight, joy and laughter when the right to abortion – killing of the unborn child – became law in our country. That contemptible laughter was and is morally repugnant. The Coombe have isdued the TRUTH but you choose to lie and spin to move forward the slaughter of the beautuful innocent unborn child. Look into the face of any new born child (or your own children if that is your blessing) and reflect on the horrible ugliness of abortion and how it extinguished the unique and beautiful gift of life. I believe in compassion for women in gravest situations but the onward march for abortion on demand is frightening, for that is what you and others want.

Expecting others to murder a baby for your convenience – don’t expect any decent human being to jump to your command. Doing others dirty work for them -some nurses and doctors will never do that.

    2. Fr. O’Neill makes a lot of very valid points. A Sinn Fein voter in every election since I was 18 and growing up in a staunchly republican area with strong republican views myself, I have voted DUP in the last couple of elections as I can no longer stomach to vote for what Sinn Fein has become. I do not follow like a mindless sheep. I am intelligent and well informed. The South now disgusts me with its rabid hatred for any expression of religion. The Southern broadcasters and newspapers are globalist, one-viewed propagandists – only one view of the world and life is allowed. Thank God for Northern Ireland: it was colonised because it was the MOST Gaelic part of Ireland. The South is a vassal state of the EU and big business. I do not at present wish to have it ruling my life.
      Sinn Fein are now like the mafia – look at O’Muilleoir and his buying of votes and collusion with Romanian gangmasters. At every corner there is a ” peace and reconciliation office” or such like – usually being staffed by Sinn Fein and their family members. No wonder they changed completely on Europe since they led Ireland against Maastricht ( or whatever), money, money, money…….. look at the foreigners flooding the lower Ormeau etc and the housing they get over locals. There is MONEY being made out of this and the locals have to shut up.
      As an Irish person who values her culture I would like to be left in peace to enjoy it: not have it stolen from me. I do not want to be ruled by Dublin leading my children and grandchildren to be enticed into aborting their children and them being indoctrinated into believing sex has nothing to do with chromosomes.
      Why don’t you THINK? Present day Sinn Fein are no longer my champions. Go Peadar Toibin, better still go Irexit !
